Thankful Thursday: Things I Learned from My Mom

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!

We celebrated Mothers Day last Sunday and I spent a lot of time showing my Mom just how special she is to me, and to all of us.  But that got me thinking.  The Sisters do get a little worried when I start thinking MOL!

Anyways, I’ve learned a lot from my Mom and I think she is a very special teacher…

I learned that being a lap cat is a very special thing.  I wasn’t a lap cat until the last year or so but I’ve been enjoying it and my Mom says she enjoys it too.

Making biscuits doesn’t necessarily have to involve flour.  When I’m on or close to my Mom’s lap I am a mega-fluffer.  Not only do I fluff with my front paws, but my back paws get going too.  My Mom has learned that my claws, even though recently trimmed, grow back rather quickly.

My Mom has also taught be to be nice to others and to not judge other kitties just because they don’t look like you.  After all, not every kitty can be a tabby.  Love ya Mom!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

What a cute post! George is like that, too. I have to trim his nails weekly, as well as Chloe Jo’s. George does not use his, even when he jumps up on me (which is all of the time). Chloe JO, however, uses hers for everything! XO

I just know your Mom absolutely loves hearing that you enjoy being a lap kitty….sometimes it takes us a while to appreciate the finer things in life (!!) and now that you’ve discovered it, you’ll probably stick with it! I started out as a major lap kitty, but as I got older I do less of the lap thing…..Mom misses it I know….but it’s hard for me to get up and down from her lap – she always picks me up to help but I don’t always “warn” her when I’m ready to get down and it hurts my legs… Read more »

Brian, this was so nice. Not every kitty appreciates all the things their mom does for them. Astrid is a champion at the four-pawed knead…always in Mom’s lap. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
